Turkey descended into chaos on Friday night as the military failed in an attempt to overthrow the government.
There were fears among fans on social media that Orlando Magic and Spanish international Serge Ibaka was caught up in the events as he holidayed with his family on the Mediterranean coast.
Antalya is hundreds of miles away from the cities of Istanbul and Ankara, where most of the violence took place, and Ibaka took to social media to ensure his followers that he was safe from any danger.
The 26-year-old, who was traded to the Magic in exchange for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the draft rights to Domantas Sabonis, posted: 'Thanks everyone for the support messages while I'm in Antalya, Turkey. Everyone is safe here and hope this situation finishes soon.'
The nation's Prime Minister Binali Yildirim stated that the attempted coup was now over and some 2,839 soldiers had been arrested, including a number of high-ranked officials from within the military. He went on to say at least 161 people had been killed and 1,440 wounded.
It is certainly a worrying time for all Turkish nationals, and it is not yet known who the instigator of Friday's events was. However, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan pinned the blame on a 'parallel structure', clearly referencing the United States-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen.
Bordering Syria, Iran and Iraq, the country has been a hotbed for violence and many holiday-goers have been put off visiting. Istanbul was the victim of a horrendous terrorist attack at Ataturk Aiport in June that claimed 45 lives and left hundreds of others injured.
Ibaka will be back in the United States soon to acclimatise to life with his new franchise, but his holiday will certainly have been affected somewhat by the attempted uprising. Hopefully, we've seen the end of the violence.
